could create jobs? steve moore is a senior economic writer for the "wall street journal." some are calling this an irene stimulus package saying look at all the construction workers and other folks who are going to have to go out there and do the cleanup, valid? >> megyn i'm not one of those economists that thinks that a serious hurricane and flooding sometime later the economy. this is the old method gee of broken windows, you break the windows and have somebody to fix them and that sometime later the economy. the fact that people have flooded basements and i saw the pictures you've been showing all days on fox news that is not a stimulus to the economy. it's going to reduce the wealth of american households. the only question, megyn is by how much. i've seen statistics as you have, tense of billions. i think that is a little high, ten to 20 billions. katrina was 125 billion. not nearly the magnitude of that but still very troubling. megyn: on the grand scale of the u.s. economy that seems like a blib in terms of financial costs, am i wrong? >> it is. if you look at the resort

expected. economist steve richiuitto believes the financial impact will be modest. >> the numbers that are being bandied about are basically anywhere from $10 billion to $40 billion. but if you look at it in terms of its effect on quarterly g.d.p., third quarter g.d.p., how much could you take off of that? well the answer, basically, is about 0.1%. that's nowhere near the $45 billion in private insurance damage from hurricane katrina in 2005, but many experts say it's too early to calculate the full impact of irene, especially with some towns still underwater. and then there's the yet-to-be- tallied impact to retailers. some chains, like home depot and lowes, benefited from storm preparations. others, however, suffered as irene forced many to shutter during a busy weekend. analyst r.j hottovy said late august can be important for many retailers. >> typically in a period like this, especially being back to school season, a lot of the purchases are simply going to get delayed into this week. the problem for retailers? this potentially could move inventories to a markdown situation.
